Default New to Heli need some advice please??

I have a Blade CP and have been practicing a lot and also have the Real Flight Sim been practicing there too.. I want to get the Align T-Rex 600CF Kit w/600XL Motor as my first true real Heli. the Blade CP I do not count as a true Heli. I need some advice in what I would need to complete the kit. These kit do not come with Main Roto blades. What I mean when I say complete the kit is is there anything that will make the Heli better that does not come in the kit I am not talking about bling not there yet. Also I have been looking at the Spektrum DX7 as a radio. When I build the heli and place everything on the Heli what setup would I have to do to fly?? This part I am a bit confuse like setting up the gyro and stuff like that???


Please give as much tip and you can thanks you for all your help...

The stock 600CF is a superb kit, get genuine Align Carbon Blades for it. Here's mine with coincidently a brand new DX7, my first Spektrum. Set up correctly you will not believe how stable they are, Gary.
Flying setup depends how you intend to fly.

Why a Trex600? Don't you wanna go with a 450V2 or 500 as your first heli? Parts on these heli have a bit lesser cost compared to the Trex 600 plus the batteries on the 600 cost at least 250 to 300 a piece.

Due to stablility of the heli that why I say a Trex600 when there is wind. So a 500 will be better??

The 600 will be more stable but honestly you are planning to sink the money require in the 600 for a starter heli? If so kudos but I think it is one of the best kits of the size out there, but I would recommend something a little less expensive to start out with.

The 600 is wonderfully stable. We fly many different helis in our group, from micro FP helis, 450's, 30 sized nitros (same size as the T-Rex 500 as I understand), 50 sized nitros, T-Rex 600 (same size as a 50 nitro) and one 90 sized nitro.
Stability increases all the way along that list.
If you can hover your Blade CP, then you can justifiably consider the T-Rex 600. I would practice side in and nose in on the Blade and the sim before tackling it with the T-Rex.
